New Orleans 2011: set 2

Perhaps if you asked me what my favorite picture from our stay in New Orleans is, it may surprise you when I tell you this one. It is not the typical New Orleans photo. But, I love it because I feel it embodies all that New Orleans is about...it is colorful. layered. old. new. rich. in depth. stark elegance against decay. weathered. textured. And just a little off.

It's no wonder I got a parking ticket the first time I went to New Orleans! As a matter of fact, I think this is exactly where Nikki and parked. Like we were taunting the meter maid.

And this one makes me smile and be happy. That man, the one giving that look over the tops of the other people's heads, is the man I love. And I have come to know that look all too well. It says, "If you take another picture of me I will, quite possibly, lose control and do something I will be sorry for." But, he never does. And I never stop. I let up a bit for awhile. But never stop...
